Rumors judge Analisa Torres is part of the “deep state” so theory expects Ripple to lose against SEC
Suspicions are spreading in the XRP community that the judge overseeing the case, Analisa Torres, is a “deep state” member as the court case involving Ripple Labs and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) waits for a decision. Supporters of the idea predict that Ripple will lose its battle with the SEC.
John E. Deaton, a well-known member of the XRP community and the attorney who filed an amicus brief on behalf of 75,000 XRP investors, strenuously disputes this theory. He claims that having Judge Torres is “lucky” for Ripple and XRP.
The judge didn’t summarily dismiss this case the way people are assuming. She dismissed it according to a plea deal “after prosecutors said in a filing last week that the guards completed deferred prosecution.” 👇

The theory that Judge Torres is part of the “deep state” was published by a popular Twitter account in the XRP community with 141,000 followers. He claimed that Judge Torres’ purported membership in the deep state’s elite group would cause Ripple to lose its lawsuit against the SEC.
Judge Torres’ decision to dismiss a case against two jail guards who admitted to manipulating records on the evening of Jeffrey Epstein’s death is cited as claimed evidence for this claim.
For perspective, Epstein was an American investment banker accused of many charges of raping minors as well as prostitution and human trafficking in 2019. He was charged with assaulting many women and giving them to his wealthy pals.
Epstein was discovered dead in his cell in New York on August 10, 2019. Officials think he killed himself. Yet, due to missing security cameras and forged records, it is assumed that Epstein was killed to keep the identities of important government figures a secret.
Deaton countered that the public was misunderstanding the verdict. Judge Torres threw out the case against the two guards for formal reasons.
“People are reading this entirely wrong. People read that Judge Torres dismissed the case vs. two guards who falsified records related to Epstein and then make the crazy leap that Judge Torres is part of the deep state and will thus decide in favor of the SEC. Absolutely not true ” Deaton said.
The attorney claims that contrary to what is implied by the rumor, Judge Torres did not summarily dismiss the case. Instead, she did so by an agreement “after prosecutors claimed in a document last week that the guards completed deferred prosecution. We were fortunate to secure Judge Torres, Deaton continued.
At the time of publication, the XRP price was $0.3638. As a result, the price’s crucial support level at $0.3708 was turned down.
